It was a nice, relaxing Memorial Day. We started the day with the Lowerys at the Salute to Veterans Parade in downtown Columbia. As always, the highlight of the parade for the kids was the Golden Knights jumping into the different intersections and then giving high fives to the jumpers as they carry their parachutes back to their meeting point.
We spent the rest of the day doing some cleaning, cooking, and relaxing. Jeremy joined us for dinner and Bacon Explosion – good food and drinks, a great friend, and family.
I am lucky. I get to enjoy a barbecue with my family and a great friend on this day. Thanks to all the servicemen and servicewomen who stand up every day so that I can do exactly this today. Most especially, thank you to all the people who gave their all and to their families who remember them on this day. Without you, this country would not be what it is today. I appreciate all the sacrifices that you make for the rest of us. Our flag flies for you today. Thank you.
